scientific information holdings are increasingly available in electronic
information systems, which enable networked access to scientific knowledge,
primarily via the internet. In this context, the project of constructing an
ontology of the academic disciplines was a reaction to the dynamic
differentiation of academic disciplines, institutions and programmes of study.
The project sought to develop a system of concepts that illustrates points of connection and association where the different disciplines encounter and engage with each other in their epistemic, social and communicative structures.
